A great place to stay, delicious breakfast and comfortable rooms. When we arrived we were offered tea and cake and a folder with all the menus for the local restaurants and pubs, their location on a map and when they had live music. In the room there was a folder of local walks and a booklet on walks in Connemara....

Great stay at the guesthouse. Very comfortable and spacious. Owners friendly and very helpful, gave great suggestions on both dinner and next days activities, one of our favorite stays in Ireland thanks to these suggestions. Couldn't have been more helpful and breakfast deliciouse. It was my friends first time staying in a B&B/Guesthouse, and now they're sold on them.

My nephew and I stayed in Clifden. The Buttermilk Lodge is a great location. It is an easy walk to town (downhill). Coming back is a bit harder but if you have spent enough time in the pubs, you won't notice! The room had two beds and a bathroom. Breakfast was good. They packed a lunch for us which was...

We've stayed here twice. It's within walking distance of Clifden's main street, but is in a quiet, scenic location. It has everything - Great rooms, breakfast, decor ( cow themed....), parking, wifi,etc. etc. But it's best feature is the welcome. It feels like you're a guest in someone's home as you have tea in the lounge and peruse Clifden's restaurant...

If you enjoy staying in B&Bs, then you'll have difficulty finding better in that field. This place really is everything being done right... It's warm and inviting, welcomed with cake and coffee, the roomas are always warm, the staff unobtrusive and the place is immaculately clean... you're guaranteed a brilliant breakfast, plenty of options and the best pancakes you'll ever...

An easy walk to and from the lively small town of Clifden, with its many shops and music pubs. Quiet, clean and comfortable, with easy parking and generous, varied and tasty breakfasts. Peat fire in the lounge, along with complimentary tea/coffee and biscuits helped make it a pleasant place to sit. Warm welcome too - the owners have thought of...

We had only one night here and would have loved to spend more time. On our many travels we appreciate extra attention to detail and care and Buttermilk Guest House is tops. We have found many B & Bs giving only basics and some less than that. I think all should at least have tissues, face washers and lovely towels,...

Buttermilk is without a doubt in my mind one of the best places a person can stay while on a vacation to the west of Ireland. We spent two nights at this beautiful b and b in Clifden, and found the staff to be upstanding and most pleasant, the home to be spotless and very comfortable, and the breakfast to...

Cathriona had lots of information about the area. Our room was comfortable and the shower was very good. The location of this b and b was perfect just a short walk to town. I would recommend Buttermilk lodge as a place to stay.
